The Islamic State group released a video Saturday purportedly showing the beheading of Japanese hostage Kenji Goto. The executioner appears to be the man known as Jihadi John, speaking with a southern English accent and addressing the Japanese government. "You, like your foolish allies in the Satanic coalition, have yet to understand that we, by Allah's grace, are an Islamic Caliphate with authority and power, an entire army thirsty for your blood," he said. He then speaks directly to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
